    I think at 3p it's got to be worth a shot! Let us know how it goes!

    Hi all, any good tips for getting the lollies out of the moulds? I've found the juice type ones to be easier than the milky ones so far... I fill a small tupperware container with warm water and leave the mould dunked in it for a short while, but it's not ideal so tips appreciated :)

    Oh...I thought it was cold water to help release things...isn't it warm water for stuff like jellies?

    Haven't been anywhere that sells the moulds yet, but have invested heavily in a MrT version of said 3p whip:D One of the offspring also picked up skimmed instead of full-fat milk the other day so I thought I'd use that up in the lollies too.

    I forgot meself tho & started supping at the milk & it was incedibly tasty:p It's the MrT 'Local Choice' variety of fresh milk--currently 2p cheaper than the bog standard 2 pinters--so hopefully the lollies should be fine.

    Thanks BigMumma - could be where I'm going wrong then! I'll try cold water next time :D

    I use semi skimmed but that's a good idea to use skimmed for a lower calorie lolly! I bet it won't taste much different at all :)

    Edited to add: Thanks again - cold water worked a treat! :)

    My daughter adores frozen yogurt.

    My mum had been buying frubes (or whatever they're called) to give her, but they are rather expensive so I bought some moulds and some tesco value yogurts. Much cheaper and dd enjoys them all the same.

    Butterscotch gets the thumbs up from me ;)

    Strawberry Nesquik lollies thumbs down from 9 year old boy, though he ate 3 before finally deciding :rotfl:

    My son has now asked for 'plain milk' lollies - I can't imagine these would be very nice :confused: anyone tried it?

    I've picked up a packet of that 3p whip too - got to be worth a go!

    Might get round to trying my 3p whip lollies this week-end---there's not been the room in the freezer:o

    As to plain milk lollies MissyG, I guess that would be the vanilla whip.....

    All things going well, I'm planning on having a bash at nanananananana ones. What do you think on mixing mashed banana into banana whip; or just whacking mashed nana into moulds; or just nana whip?:rolleyes: ....oooh, making a tub of mashed nana & whip, to be served with cream:drool:
